Summer is all about make the most of wearing the least. In the summer, I like to keep my fashion and beauty routine simple. A little mascara, a little lip gloss, moisturizer and I’m out the door. The same goes for fashion.That means it’s easy to get dressed in the morning and a delight to lighten up. This month, we’re working with Vaseline to provide you with a summer round up of a few of our summer favorites.
Let’s start from the bottom–my footwear of choice in the summer is a flip flop. I have indoor and outdoor pairs and I favor the Havaianas for their style and sturdiness. I particularly like the partnership between Havaianas and Baby Buggy. 10% of these limited edition, celebrity designed shoes will be donated directly to Baby Buggy, a nonprofit dedicated to providing families in need with essential equipment, products, clothing, and educational services for their infants and children.
Since we’re talking beach and summer, I can’t help but include my all-time favorite coverups from Calypso St. Barth. These tunics look great paired with a bikini or shorts and are always my go-to when packing for the surf and sand. You can’t go wrong with a mandarin collar and a few pintucks. Classic simplicity.
With this effortless look, I like to keep my footwear and shoes simple, I do like to add a pop of color around the neck. This summer, I’m crazy for pops of orange with either white or chambray. I know this necklace would look as good at lunch with girlfriends or for drinks with my dream date (my husband!).
Finally nothing says classic summer style like a great pair of aviators. Maybe I still have a thing for Tom Cruise circa Top Gun/1980′s (pre-Katie Holmes naturally), but I think these glasses have a cool gender bending appeal. Like I borrowed something from my super-cool boyfriend. Try the Persol Aviator Sunglasses, a sun essential that will never go out of style.
With all these bare minimum fashions one thing is required great skin. First, we’re using Vaseline Total Moisture Aloe Fresh–the light feeling lotion helps keep sun-parched skin healthy and fresh. When I smooth on improved Vaseline Total Moisture my skin feels great and all the dryness is gone. Hydrating formulas infuse moisture at the top, core and deep down layers of surface/dry skin (stratum corneum). Don’t believe me? Vaseline did a bit of research and found that in a blind survey, 82% of consumers said they are ‘Likely’ or ‘Extremely likely’ to buy Vaseline Total Moisture on their next shopping trip.
When I step out of the shower, I rely on Vaseline Total Moisture to lock in the moisture my body needs. The Aloe formula offers a light feeling formula that combines pure aloe and Stratys-3 multi-layer moisture complex. It leaves skin feeling healthy, light and fresh for 8 hours of moisturization.
Vaseline Total Moisture lotions are non-greasy and combine Stratys-3 multi-layer moisture complex and pure naturals (to feel good on skin and do good for skin). They are fast-absorbing and hydrating. Find out more about this new product at www.vaseline.us/products
